Slithers by Kevin Siervo
By: Kevin Siervo
They are crawling
Slithering and glowing
They pretend to be a friend
Soon they’ll bite you ‘cause they’re a foe.
They’ll help you in all the things you do
But be careful I’m telling you so
Don’t give your trust like I do
Hell’s their neighbour, it’ll run to you.
You can’t tame them
They’re two-faced and traitorous
Fated to come to you in deception
So you’ll rot in their own venoms.
Awaken your senses
They’ll deceive you
Steal your trust and later consume you
Not to save you but to drag you.
My friend, the world’s a misery
Not everything you see is reality
Better find a friend who knows loyalty
Than to stumble from children of blasphemy.
